"Computer skills is something I have been lacking for years now. I am already learning more than I thought I ever would. The instructor presents the information in a very easy to understand format which basically makes it like child play. I am extremely pleased with both the instructor and the information being presented. Now that I am learning these new skills, I know I will be an asset to any organization in todays work force. Thanks. I have a totally new outlook on life in general!"
"I was impressed with this class and even more with the fact that after reading one of the discussion responses that I was actually doing intermediate to advanced work with SQL and understanding it is a huge complement to the instructor. I have never been on Access or done any work with any other databases before either. I have since gone onto my home computer and done a lot of work setting up databases with the help of this course. Thank you and I will definitely be taking more and taking the instructors advice from one of the discussion areas on what to take in the future. Thank you again for a great class. After being unemployed for a year it is great to have something to make me feel good about!"
"I enjoyed the course. It removes a lot of the mystery and fear associated with the CPU box and all of the magic inside. A good confidence builder and that was what I was after in this course."
"This was my first online class and it won't be my last. I had started reading three books but couldn't really grasp the concepts. I got stuck and couldn't ask anyone. Then I took this course. Even though I'm reading text like in a book, I really feel like the instructor is talking and relating to me. I can ask questions in the discussion area and read other peoples questions. Really cool!"
"I have to admit I was completely clueless on how encryption works with WiFi. The horror stories on the web about individuals hacking personal info by breaking encryption always concerned me, as I had no real idea on securing my own network. Now I have an idea how to go forward with securing my laptop and other computers."
"I liked the course very much and it has changed my view (in a positive and constructive manner), on how to approach building a database. I especially liked the introduction to the course as it gave me an insight as to the background of students undertaking this course. This is especially interesting as students are from different parts of the world"
"I enjoyed this course. I felt rather "computer illiterate" before taking it, but found that I knew more than I thought I did. Also; my trouble areas weren't as difficult as I expected them to be. I would highly reccomend this course and may take others myself. Thank you very much for your assistance."
"I just want to say that I am so impressed by the quality of this course and I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs to upgrade their skills and wants a good start into the Java world. The course materials and suggested additional materials for each chapter are excellent. I am an experienced pl/sql Oracle Database person who really needs Java to remain technically current. I am also impressed by the amount of time you have dedicated to each of us in our assignments. Thank you."
"The course material was and will be very useful to me. It answered a lot of my questions, introduced me to new web page development methods, and provided good material for use as I work to improve the web site that I helped build and help maintain."
"I definitely got what I needed out of this class. My primary objective was to learn how to work with a self-hosted WordPress website/blog that I took over for a client. Previously, I was intimidated by WordPress because I had never worked in it. This class gave me enough knowledge and confidence to dive into the existing WordPress site and start making changes to it, as well as set up my own self-hosted WordPress site which I am integrating with an existing, traditional website. Even though my objective was outside the scope of the class, the material you covered and the conversations in the Discussion area gave me what I was looking for."
"I really enjoyed the instructors writing style, and would like to comment on her excellent use of English and attention to detail/proofreading. Too many programmers, including instructors, don't seem to care how their messages are written as long as someone, somewhere can decipher the meaning. When an instructor cares enough to write well, I respect his/her knowledge and authority on the subject. I feel that this is very important when learning, as it is the instructor's job to make material more efficient to absorb (otherwise, we wouldn't need instructors, would we?). Thanks"
"The instructor is excellent with great teaching skills. He could explain all the difficult concepts in a simple and easy to follow manner. He is really brilliant and loved his teaching. The course is really interesting explaining the basics. The quiz and assignments are nicely planned and gave more confidence. Discussion areas also helped a lot. The course is truly inspiring one!!"
"I really enjoyed this course and getting some answers to questions that have been nagging at me.I like the fact that I could print the whole course for future reference. Finally, when I have a computer problem, I can prove to my husband that it is not just the loose nut behind the keyboard. Thanks"
"What a fantastic course, especially for the cost. You can get out of it whatever you are willing to put into it. I would recommend this course to others."
"I especially liked the way the instructor paced the lessons. They weren't so complicated and involved that you had to burn the midnight oil in order to complete them. There was enough material covered, to be able to start learning some advanced Python subjects on your own."
"In my current employment, there are no documentation standards or guidelines. By taking this course, I felt enlightened right after I learned how to create a procedure and tinker with the writing style. I also learned how to identify the key emotional competences for outstanding performance." - Chen Chu

" - Alex Milosavljevic

Diane was a terrific instructor. " - James Antonucci

"I found the new 4K (HDR) Firestick to function much better than the 2nd Gen Firestick. It downloads app pages much faster. And with the added on/off function of the TV, and controlling my surround system volume/mute, awesome. There are no special settings to get through to use those functions! I was using the Ethernet adapter on the 2nd Gen Stick, but found it useless to use with this Stick. It only caused interference problems and appears to only see WiFi. So I unplugged the adapter and went with just using the WiFi. The interference stopped and now it works great! Now to only get a 4K TV!" - Amazon Reviewer
"The Roku Streaming Stick+ is simply awesome. It's super easy to set up, it's powered by your TV, and the signal booster that is built in to the USB cable ensures a strong wireless connection. This thing attaches entirely to the backside of your TV and is completely out of sight once it's installed. I bought this for use with a bedroom TV because I didn't want any unnecessary electronics cluttering up the room, and I couldn't be happier." - Amazon Reviewer
"After reviewing several security camera brands, I settled on Arlo Pro 3. A friend has had the Arlo 2 for a year and said he loves it. With the newer, Pro 3 available, I purchased the Arlo Pro 3, installed five cameras, and now have camera security around my home. The features it has is great, especially Geo-Fencing. I can leave my home and automatically the system arms itself, and upon return, it disarms automatically. Great feature, for sure. Video quality is a great, sharp image. Two way speaker system allows me to converse with anyone that comes to my home, even while I'm away from home. The buyer has an option of using (paying) the complete Arlo service, or just local at home, on your cell. I do recommend this camera security sytem." - Amazon Reviewer
"I moved my 1st generation Ring Doorbell to the back door and installed the Ring Doorbell 3 at the front door. The field of view, responsiveness, sound quality and quality of the picture are much, much better on the Ring Doorbell 3 than the first generation unit. It also limits the motion response to just the area I selected unlike the old unit that over responded and picked up the movement of cars and trucks more than 30 feet away even though I had adjusted it to be less responsive. I'm very satisfied with the new unit." - Amazon Reviewer
"I love my echo dot. I have four of them and they really help make my life easier. They can control almost everything, lights, locks TV, music, thermostat. It hears you almost all of the time and I've run into very few issues with it overall. I really couldn't ask for a more helpful device. It's even more handy when I found that I could get a battery base for it. The GGMM D3 base that I found lets me carry the alexa dot around pretty much anywhere. I love that I can take it into the bathroom with me and listen to music while I shower or take it outside and listen to music. That's really the only thing I think it was missing." - Amazon Reviewer
